By Gerald Ondrey |

Praxair India Pvt- Ltd. (Bangalore), a subsidiary of Praxair, Inc., (Danbury, Conn.; www.praxair.com), has signed a long-term contract with its existing customer, JSW Steel Ltd. (www.jsw.in), part of the O.P. Jindal Group. Praxair will expand the supply of gaseous oxygen, nitrogen and argon to JSW’s steel mill located in Tornagallu, Bellary, in the state of Karnataka. The supply contract will help the company, which is the largest private sector steel manufacturer in India in terms of installed capacity, to expand its steel production at Bellary from 10 to 12 million tons per year. Praxair will build a new air separation plant with an oxygen production capacity of 1,800 ton/d, in addition to the combined capacity of 6,800 ton/d currently in operation at JSW Steel’s Bellary facility. The new plant will also supply 1,600 ton/d of nitrogen and a significant quantity of argon to the customer. Additionally, the plant will add merchant liquid capacity to support growing local demand in Southern India in the steel, cement, chemical, textile, pharmaceutical and automotive markets.
